After a 15-year hiatus, Helmut Lang has introduced its new fragrance collection with its first two scents Eau de Parfum and Eau de Cologne, created by Maurice Roucel at Symrise in 2000.
“It’s reminiscent of the smell of sheets after a man’s been with someone,” said Roucel. “It’s sensual, but in a very refined way.” Helmut Lang’s third fragrance Cuiron, a bright leathery mixture by Givaudan, made its debut in 2002.
The Cuiron scent is classic and fresh with bergamot, mandarin, pink peppercorn and cassia oil. Rich woods, ancient resins and suede notes ground and equalize. The Eau de Parfum is sensual and ephemeral where the powder gives way to a deep, musky soul with floral top notes of lavender, rosemary and orange tree. Sandalwood, cedarwood, amber and patchouli soften and mellow. The Eau de Cologne is seductive and direct with rosemary and orange tree yield to a caramelized, musky heart of cedarwood, vanilla, sandalwood and patchouli.
The three scents is only available in 100-ml. sizes and retails at $185 each for the Eau de Parfum and Eau de Cologne. Cuiron is priced at $165.
The fragrances are available at Helmut Lang stores and at HelmutLang.com.
